Bucerius Law School’s English-taught Master of Law and Business (LL.M. / MLB) prepares young professionals for international careers in which an understanding of both legal and business concepts as well as intercultural skills are essential.
The Master of Law and Business is an interdisciplinary and international program which welcomes students from a multitude of academic and cultural backgrounds. Geared primarily towards young professionals in the legal and business fields, it is also open to graduates of other disciplines with a demonstrated interest in the disciplines of law and business.
The innovative curriculum of this master’s program is oriented along a single major theme – the founding and development of an enterprise – as this perfectly illustrates the relationship between legal and business issues. By treating topics among a diverse group of participants and in exercises and discussions with program faculty, learning is dynamic and involves the transfer of knowledge among individuals with undergraduate training and prior work experience in either the field of law or business. The skills that are developed in this kind of learning environment are essential to business lawyers dealing with corporate clients, business professionals working at the intersection of business and law, entrepreneurs and professionals interested in working in the start-up field.
The program consists of obligatory as well as elective modules. Students have the possibility of focusing on two subject areas by choosing two out of eight electives. For those with a special interest in arbitration or entrepreneurship, the program offers the opportunity to specialize in these areas. In addition to course work, all students are expected to complete a two-month internship, write a master’s thesis and participate in a social project.
Diverse career paths
The career paths chosen by the graduates are as varied as their academic backgrounds. Graduates have found employment in Germany, in their home countries and around the world. They pursue international careers in law firms, legal departments, international organizations, in consulting, banking, business development and in the start-up industry.
